To Our Valued Patients:
EyeCare Associates of Ankeny, Altoona EyeCare, and Johnston EyeCare have always been committed to the health and safety of our patients, our staff, and our community.
Because of the current spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you that it has been our commitment for years to sterilize each piece of equipment either immediately before or immediately after each use to insure no germs are spread from one patient to another. We have always been proud of this commitment.
Please also be assured that we sterilize each eyeglass frame after our patients try them on, so for us…it remains ‘business as usual’. Please be assured that we’ve got your back!
While cleanliness has always been a top priority of our practice, we are also increasing the frequency in which ‘high touch’ areas will be cleaned and sterilized, such as our reception chairs and tables as well as our restrooms and children’s play area and toys. You’ll notice that we have also removed magazines from our reception area to help ensure a sterile environment.
Additionally, we continue to practice good hygiene by demanding our doctors and staff to wash their hands frequently with anti-bacterial soap or to use a high-percentage alcohol hand sanitizer.
We are actively monitoring both local and national information about the Coronavirus and are continuing to do everything we can to keep our practice a clean and safe environment for you and your family.
We would also ask if you are experiencing any symptoms or have a fever, please stay home!
EyeCare Associates (and other two clinics) will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 and will follow the guidelines provided by local and national organizations like the CDC and WHO, and we can assure you that our practice remains a safe place to continue your uninterrupted eye health care.
We felt it important to keep you updated, and if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to give us a call.
Thank you for being such a valued patient,
James A Schroder, OD, Jeffrey J Neighbors, OD, Brian Williams, OD and Jay Petersma, OD
